    Is this a red deer or other?

    I'm curious to know what species you guys think this deer is?

    Hind.


    The deer back-right is a Sambar yearling.

    The ears certainly look like a red but would have thought that even at that angle you would have seen a bit of the white rump patch
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeah, now that you say that the rump doesn't look right... but it doesn't like a typical Sambar either.

    I review some more of the footage.

    Might be just the light and camera angle. Sambar hind with targeted ears not the normal radar ear pose..

    Definitely 100% red. Head shape and back end are typical. Adams apple gives it away as well.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Looks like a young red to me; the shape (length) of the face gives it away.

    Interesting. Might have to head out this weekend for a hunt with the camera (got enough meat in the freezer).

    General consensus is that is that it is indeed a red hind.

    Cheers guys.
